to how he will fix the economy. use of paul ryan over the weekend talking about -- you saw paul ryan over the weekend talking about how he does not have time to explain the numbers in his budget. people want that explanation and are creeping back from the governor. guest: given the constraints of the debate format, they will not give chapter and verse from the town and its parent -- from the candidates. this is more important for mitt romney. he benefits as a challenger from standing on the same stage as the incumbent president of the united states, but there is a greater burden to convince the wavering voters, the 12 or 14 people that i've not made up their minds in this election. host: post-debate spin, howard kurtz, how important is that, and how social media plays a more important role? guest: the post-debate spin, i think it is critical, as people watched the debate, but they can make up their own mind, but that is an hour and half. what you get for the next several days or a week are the clips that are replayed, the chair by the commentators. you mentioned the al gore eye- rolling t
the bush part, he hasn't wanted to explain them too much. in fact, paul ryan, his running mate says, the math is just too hard. but it really isn't. and i would imagine the obama administration, or obama's going to go through tonight, you really only need to know two numbers about romney's tax plan, one is $480 billion. that's the cost of it in 2015, just to pick one year. and the other is $251 billion. that's the amount that will go to very wealthy families. now, mitt romney's promise, his tax plan won't cost a dime on the deficit. so he somehow needs to get $480 billion out of the tax code by closing breaks and loopholes, seems like the mortgage interest deduction, and also that it won't be a tax cut on the rich. so about $250 billion of it needs to come from tax breaks for the rich. the problem for him is that independent analysts have looked at and basically said, when you take into account the tax breaks he's promised he won't touch, like the capital gains tax break, it's basically impossible to make the numbers worse. there's no way to get that many tax breaks from the rich, b
early vote mailing just this week. >> can mitt romney and paul ryan count on your support this november election? excellent. and would you be interested in voting early this election? >> reporter: karen smooth is credited with making the iowa gop's 1 millionth voter call this cycle. >> i'm calling about issues that matter to iowa. >> reporter: she's doing her part now as republicans play early voting catch-up. >> we're working hard here. we're rolling up our sleeves and putting our boots on and we're going at it. so we still have time. >> reporter: john king, cnn, iowa city, iowa. >>> and don't forget, catch the first presidential debate, denver, colorado, romney versus obama, next wednesday, 8:00 p.m. right here on cnn. >>> all right, it is time the world draws a clear red line, a strong warning from israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu about iran. and at first elected to homecoming court only to find out it was an evil prank. how one teen is getting back at the bullies. in that time there've been some good days. and some difficult ones. but, through it all, we've persevered, supp
in their whole lives than they did at that convention. >> not surprisingly, paul ryan is also focussing on swing states. he made stops in new hampshire and ohio yesterday. in the buckeye state he talked about challengers to gun rights. >> the next president is going to make a lot of judgments. the next president will appoint a lot of different judges, and these are lifetime appointments. if you want to make sure that judges respect our second amendment rights, you immediate a president who respects those rights as well. mitt romney and i are going to respect the second amendment because it's our individual right to keep and bare arms. >> paul ryan spends the day today attending fundraisers in connecticut. although the u.s. supreme court isn't set to look at any gun rights challenges, it is going to hear several high-profile and controversial cases. tomorrow morning the justices are kicking off the new term. it always happens the first monday in october. here's joe johns with more. >> reporter: right after the supreme court's health care decision in june chief justice john roberts joked to collea
thursday morning. >> reporter: contrast that with romney's running mate paul ryan who was on another show at all the same time giving the president the edge. >> he is an experienced debater and has done these kinds of debates before. this is mitt's first time on this kind of a stage. >> reporter: a new "washington post" abc poll finds most vote expect the president to win the first face-off. meanwhile, there's already spin on how the media will cover the results. top obama strategist david plouffe said it will be pro-romney. ryan told fox news bias is already baked in. >> i think it goes without saying that there's definitely a media bias. i'm used to media bias. we expect media bias going into this. >> wow. >> reporter: some in the romney campaign are even questioning a slew of recent polls that show the president leading in crucial swing states like ohio. romney's ohio state director issued a memo saying that it is amazing what happens when you stop over-sampling democrats and fine a race in ohio that's as tight as a tick. rhode island an told one interview he prefers interviews with lo
on to clarify. but, ana, paul ryan wasted no time, seizing on those comments. good strategy? >> look, you know, i love joe biden. i don't know how every republican in america doesn't love joe biden. he is a great guy. he's fun. he is the gift that keeps on giving. i miss joe biden. we hadn't heard a gaffe from good old joe in about two or three weeks. it really had been a long time. this is what the campaigns are like today in 2012, unfortunately. we look for gaffes on each other and try to make them real big. i think when joe starts getting earnest, when he starts getting righteous and starts talking about god, watch out, because a zinger is coming out. >> speaking of zingers, the debate spoet supposedly is going to be all about zingers. i can see mitt romney taking that line. i would. maria? >> the problem with that, though, carol, is that if you know joe biden and what he has done in his career, he has actually been one of the strongest spokespersons for the middle class and for working americans. and if you look at what he said, if you look at it in context, he clearly is talking about how
with you guys incidentally. we have had a blast here. but i remember when paul ryan made his speech that night, while the speech was still going on, we were watching the tweets come up pointing out that he had blatantly misrepresented one of the key stories that he told. and i'll tell you, i think that his inability to really give any kind of boost to the romney/ryan ticket has been shaped as much as anything else by the fact that he did a belly flop in that speech because the social media picked him up on it right away before the speech was even over. >> jennifer: it's an interesting thing. maybe the main stream media will be influenced by the twitter stream more than the reverse. >> cenk: we have got to take a quick break, when we come back john has an interesting question. what is the question we would ask of the debaters. >> cenk: we're back on current's politically direct coverage of the first presidential debate. it's coming up in just a little bit. going to be a lot of fun. john fugelsang has a question for all of us. >> john: as long as we're all celebrating
long for paul ryan to pounce on that comment. >> vice president biden just today said that the middle-class, over the last four years has been, quote, buried. we agree. that means, we need to stop digging by electing mitt romney. >> reporter: the latest abc news/"washington post" poll shows the race for president is still very close, which means every word and gesture tonight could impact the election. brandi hitt, abc news, denver. >> thanks to brandi hitt. abc's coverage of tonight's debate begins at 9:00 eastern, 6:00 pacific. >>> now, we turn to the trouble at american airlines. and actually progress on two fronts this morning. there is new movement in the bitter labor dispute between the airline and its pilots union. and also, the mystery of the seats that came loose during three, separate flights may have been solved. abc's tahman bradley is tracking all of the developments. good morning, tahman. that safety issue with those loose seats. what are we hearing now? >> reporter: well, rob, american airlines is now blaming the loose seats on clamps that were not installed properly. e
. mr. plummer endorsed the paul ryan budget which turns into a doctor program. he also, third, jobs. i have a clear and to the jobs plan which can look at on my website. mr. plummer has a 12-point plan which he has yet to fully release. apparently it endorses continued corporate welfare and ending regulations. we all know what happened when big banks regulation were eased. you've of the determination for which a bus has a better plan to make it better for working people in southern illinois. we do not know where the nation will be next week or next year. we do not know what series decisions will need to be made by our congressmen. so it is important for you to know who we are and how we make decisions. it is important for you to consider which of the candidates has proven experience, proven leadership, proven integrity. there are three drastically different visions. one is clear choice.

before you get into office. on the other side we all know paul ryan can do the math and he can spend the whole 90 minutes talking about -- >> of course paul ryan isn't the candidate for president. >> paul ryan will get his chance. >> if you endorsed budget, please explain to us how that works. >> well, at least there's a budget. >> he was for and then against it. >> so how should romney answer? our debate all this week has been your argument is he should avoid substance at all costs. so how should romney answer her question then? >> the good news is that the rules don't allow him to speak more than a few seconds. >> actually, two minutes i think. >> so move on to the next issue, the next issue. we're looking for details. you are not going to get details tonight. >> let's be clear, there's 15-minute segments. they have two minutes to respond to the question and then jim lehrer's going to narrate the back and forth. there should be enough time. >> one thing i want to say though is that this is going to be for a bunch of young americans their first chance to vote. a lot of the young ame
's how paul ryan responded. >> i thought he was taking my speech. you know what? we agreed these are being buried by obama care and spending regulations and all things plaguing a business. the way to stop this is to stop this. >> the middle class has been buried for four years. who is to blame? >> that little exchange we saw encapsulates the challenge for president barack obama tonight. he has to defend his record, he's got to take credit for the good things that have happened. i do think the country is headed in the right direction as i think most americans do, but i think he has to acknowledge how the experience is of real americans enough. not only on economic issues but he's not changing the tone in washington, which he's set out to do. i think the president also has to say what to do differently in the next four years. each of these men have to make a case of themselves and articulate the vision they have for the next four years otherwise they won't have a successful evening. >> there's trouble for biden in a new poll. a cnn/orc poll to put up for everyone. 60% of like

" narrative. sunday paul ryan said it's not in the least bit true that cutting the tax rate by 20% would cut $20 trillion in five years. >> how much does it cost? >> it's revenue neutral. >> we'll get to the -- >> the cut in tax rates is lower, by 20%. >> how much does that cost? >> it's revenue neutral. lowering the tax rates by broadening the tax rates -- >> let me --. i -- >> you haven't given me the math. >> i don't have the time. it would take me too long go through all of the math. >> that's a quote you're going to hear a lot, i guess from the obama campaign and the president himself. meanwhile the president who's known for being a bit long-winded and can have an hour-long news conference with only eight questions is working to sharpen his responses. quote, we eh had a hard time getting every point across within the time limit. you're trying to make a case to the people, so you have to make sure your answers connect with people. he got some advice from howard dean. >> the president's got to avoid being irritable. hi's got to roll with the punches. mitt is going to be out there, aggress

. that was a question thrown to congressman paul ryan in colorado yesterday. the woman stood up and said i was a little concerned about john mccain performance against president obama, let her pick up the question from there. >> will they be forceful in this debate and take it to obama? >> ma'am, absolutely, but one little difference between then and now. president obama has a record. and president obama has a record in a string of broken promises. of course he will. >> of course one thing is certain, tracy, when you look at the numbers of the battleground polls and how they're trending toward president obama, governor romney needs to make a big move and it needs to happen in that first debate next week, tracy. tracy: john roberts, you're absolutely right. thank you, sir. a quarter until the hour, checking on stocks. the call watching the dow, are we giving it all to spain? nicole: the dow jones industrials are doing very well up about 78 points. four days of selling and here we are, industrials, 26 of the 30 names have green arrows. just name a few of the dow winners. a pretty good day here on your ha
president. >> okay. so johnson is choosing paul ryan over jets coach rex ryan. but he is a major fund-raiser for the romney campaign in new york and connecticut and also in new jersey. just as he was for john mccain and george w. bush. the news isn't too surprising. he's not alone. more than a few team owners in major sports are politically involved. there can be a backlash from these kinds of political stands. famous quote from 1990. michael jordan was asked to support a democratic candidate for senate, declined at the time saying republicans buy shoes, too. currently the owner of the charlotte bobcats and raises money for president obama. i don't think he's all that concerned at this point in his life and career that people will alienate him because of his political choices. >> back in the day, he was selling a lot of shoes. maybe that was the reason for that comment. a.j. hammer, thanks so much. he will be back with us in the next hour for more showbiz headlines. >>> the man behind the viral individu video sits down to talk about his breakdown and hospitalization. >>> one credit ca
and what we can expect to see tonight is. she is trying to tie heller to paul ryan's budget plan. democrats love to say that once in congress and once in the senate he was actually appointed to the senate last year when he resigned. he voted for it twice and should probably come up tonight. for her to say something along the lines of dean heller wants to end medicare as we know and turn it into a voucher program, and basically try to tie him to that. you've also seen him running a little bit from mitt romney and with his comments last week about the 47% we saw him distance himself from that saying that is and how he viewed the world. so we may see that, as well. she will also likely bring up the dream act that's a pretty good deal in nevada and is obviously a state with a high latino population. shelley berkley supports the dream act and dean heller doesn't. she's tried to cut an issue and he's tried to reach out to latino voters in the ads and other ways of outreach. >> when it comes to looking at the polling or what is suggested as far as this is concerned, what is the story in nevada? >>
saying it is a brand new race. >> reporter: and running mate paul ryan hanging success on the debates. >> the debate phase in this campaign. we will make this case in our debates. >> reporter: that debate will be held here in denver. in the meantime, mitt romney held a rally here behind me. most of his t-unken. preparing for the most important night of his polil cpdaac ner. >>> and president obama is spending his last full day of debate prep at a resort outside st to deliver pza at abc political analyst matt dowd says mr. obama's advisers are focused on helping the president trim his often lengthy answers. to o bes often lengthy answers. answer questions, short, concisely, and to the point, and so it's much more like his mannerisms and his style and the way he comes across as 'posed to information in this. >> so style, not substance, i guess? i don't know. >> sounds like it. >> both parties say the first debate traditionally helps the challenger just by appearing on stage as an alternative. abc news live coverage of the first presidential debate, begins tomorrow night at 9:00 p.m. eas
eight or nine or ten months? the american people have heard his story. they have listened to paul ryan and they have rejected their approach. they are embracing this president's agenda because he's got us headed in the right direction. things are improving in america and we ought not to just turn around and go back to the same failed policies that brought on this recession in the first place. >> governor strickland it's always a pleasure to speak with you. >> thank you. >> did you ever see the princess bride? last question. we'll never find out the answer to that question, maybe most important. >> go home and watch the princess bride. >> don't do it. >> what do you make of what governor strickland said there? >> the president's cold and confident nature, for some, comes off as overconfident, can come off as condescending. you played that clip with hillary clinton. how does that play when you have power? will it come off as condescending and smug against mitt romney? it's a tricky thing he has to maneuver. >> last thing you're thinking about right now is what's going to be the tone of m
. paul ryan has been pretty busy, almost nonstop, out on the campaign trail the last couple of days. and so, you know, i think he'll let his surrogates do the talking for him until the debate gets started. one other thing we heard from kevin madden yesterday on the campaign plane heading into denver yesterday, brooke, you heard over the weekend, chris christie saying that this race is going to be turned upside down that romney will have such a strong performance that it is going to be sort of a game changer. i asked kevin madden about that yesterday, and he said he doesn't think that the campaign doesn't think that one event, one moment during these debates is going to decide and determine everything. they just don't see it that way. they like christie's enthusiasm, they say they're feeding off of it, but they don't exactly agree with that assessment. brooke, we're all sort of looking to tomorrow night to be this big moment that is going to change everything and be a make or break moment. it may not turn out that way. it may be a draw. the candidates move on to the next debate and c
administration's policies. congressman paul ryan pounced. >> of course, the middle class has been buried. they're being buried by regulations. they're being buried by taxes. is they're being buried by borrowing. they're being buried by the obama administrations economic failures. >> reporter: biden later tried to dig himself out. >> the middle class was buried by the policies of romney and the ryan supported. >> reporter: except for debate prep, it was a politics-free day for the presidential contenders. romney had lunch at chipotle while president obama paid a visit to the hoover dam. both candidates have spent hours in debate sessions and both have challenges. aides say the president is working on keeping his answers short to not sound like professor obama. in order to win over undecided voters, romney needs to appear relatable and offer specifics on his agenda. >> he has to find something more than just discussing how bad the economy is or blaming the president for how much the economy continues to struggle. >> reporter: all the prep work comes down to just 90 minutes. both candidates, one
. >> steve: he did. >> brian: the other thing is the president had to get prepared for the debate. paul ryan and joe biden had to carry their weight. it didn't really work too well. >> steve: you know how mitt romney prepared yesterday out in denver for the debate. he had the burrito bowl at chipotle. >> brian: right. >> steve: he said he usually goes with a burrito, but yesterday. >> martha: burrito bowl. let's get a look at some headlines this morning. there are concerns today that the obama administration may be looking to move some of the gitmo detainees to american soil. the federal government plans to buy the thompson correctional center in illinois. at one point this prison was considered for housing gitmo detainees and there was a huge controversy based around that. many lawmakers outraged saying it would open the door for ultimately carrying out a gitmo transfer. house speaker john boehner said this, the unilateral decision to purchase the thompson prison, even though congress repeatedly opposed the obama administration's effort to use the taxpayer funds to do so, underscores the ad
as they should in any election. governor romney chose paul ryan and his running mate. he is relatively young by you look at what he stands for. he wants to change medicare as we know it. he uses all kind of and tries to come across like the boy next door. you have to look at the question of why governors -- governor romney is invested so heavily. guest: thanks for the call. in our research, young people are very concerned at issues and looking for information on issues. in 2008, young people said their position on issues was more important than character responsibility are looking for someone who can understand the issues and the variances they have the also, our research has shown that they are caught and sent a worthy of liberation. we hear the young people are looking to places they trust for information. young people are very careful to know about things. -- they areg to get looking to get information from the people in their lives. there are members of the family who they respect. young people are very cognizant of where they get their information and very critical. >> you have talked a
in the american idea. only 30% want the welfare state. >> so, again, just context for our viewers that was paul ryan, this is a speech from last november. the whole speech has been on youtube since last fall. so my question to you, howie kurtz, are there really substantive points to be scored here by drudging up these all videos? >> there can be. i don't have any problem with it, people on either side drudging up old videos. it helps if the video you're drudging up has never been seen or heard before, then it has some shock value. there can be substantive and revealing comments in what people say when they think the spotlight is not on them. but in the case of this particular obama speech at hampton university in virginia in 2007, he delivered it in front of a bunch of reporters. cameras there. the surprise factor has been lost here. >> you covered the media. as we mentioned it right wing radio, right wing conservative television today, pointing at the -- it is the mainstream media, this is all the mainstream media, my question is, their ratings are high, they bring in the big bucks, aren't the
running mate paul ryan propose to cap malpractice insurance. cut medicaid by $810 billion over the next ten years. give states more control over their medicaid funds. overhaul medicare. the overhaul? people now younger than 55, when they reach retirement, would have the option of getting a voucher to purchase private insurance. or they could stick with traditional medicare. >> this financial support system is designed to guarantee that seniors can always afford medicare coverage, no exceptions. >> reporter: while the repeal of obama care would get rid of the prescription drug benefit to seniors, romney doesn't want to take out all of the law's provisions. >> we have to make sure that people who have pre-existing conditions are able to get insured and that folks that get sick don't get dropped by their insurance company. >> reporter: douglas holtz icon, the president of the american action form, he doesn't support the current health care law. >> both sides agree that the amount we spend on medicare has to be capped. they just disagree on how to get there. romney and ryan say, what we're
